THE EVENT
Hundreds of Austin’s finest thought leaders, philanthropists, and community members come together at this annual fundraiser with the shared goal to make a positive impact for the Texas Colorado River and its Highland Lakes. This truly memorable event features live music, exquisite food & drink, luxury silent auction, thrilling live auction, and other fun surprises. All funds raised will go to support water education for youth & the community which build awareness to protect the Texas Colorado River and keep it healthy for future generations.


THE ALLIANCE
At the Colorado River Alliance, we believe that a healthy, flowing river is imperative to the well-being of our communities and our state. Our mission is to champion the long-term vitality of the Texas Colorado River through education and engagement. We dedicate resources, time, and energy to educating Texans about how the Texas Colorado River supports us and how, in turn, we can ensure the longevity of its health. Since 1994, the Alliance has been connecting kids to the river, teaching them about natural resources, and helping to nurture a generation of water stewards and ambassadors.


THE IMPORTANCE
Because of its importance to our state’s economy, our environment, our industry, our agriculture, and especially our lives as Texans, the Texas Colorado River is truly the lifeblood of our state. It is also the lifeblood of Austin’s $150B economy, which provides recreational and social environment envied throughout the nation. In order to maintain this precious resource for future generations to use and enjoy, we must educate today’s youth on its importance and take action by keeping it clean and flowing.
